Default Bimini twist knot.

I know this subject has been done to death but.....

I use this knot and think it's the best attachment for running line to shockleader but over the last couple of months I've upped my shockleader to 80lb and find the normal 3 up and 3 down ends up a right bulky knot.

I've been trying to fix up a smaller knot to the bimini loop.
Anyone suggest a neater smaller knot.

Spider hitch for your loop in main line but I turn the loop over once on its self then pass the leader through the 2 holes and tie with a bristol 3 wraps up with mono leader. Braid leader I do 3 up 3 down back through the double loop.

Hi Shaun,
Would that knot be OK with braid, seems an easy knot to tie.

Davy..

Harry, I use a uni knot (3 turns inside the loop) with my Bimini, having threaded through the eye of an overhand knot in the leader first.

Thats fantastic.

Cheers Lads often wondered how to make a stronger knot.

FYI - Tied the knot up half a dozen times with 50lb PowerPro braid / 60lb mono - no problems !!
Should get out in the boat the morra, will give it a go !!!!
